Lisa studied at the University of Durham in the UK, before learning her copy-editing, proof-reading and copy-writing skills at Hodder & Stoughton as a commissioning book editor. In 2008, she became the managing editor of The Good Food Guide and was paid to compile the annual bestselling guide to the top restaurants in the UK (it was tough).
She’s been living in Cape Town for five years and, together with Renée, heading up the content and product marketing team at Yuppiechef, an online retailer spearheading the eCommerce revolution in South Africa.
From commissioning and managing all content (photoshoots, food styling, copy and articles) for the magazine and newsletters to driving Yuppiechef’s social media channels and many of their most successful community campaigns, Lisa knows her way around marketing effectively through world class content and having fun while doing it.
Lisa lives in Noordhoek with her husband and two kids and when not tapping away on her keyboard, she loves a raucous dinner party and coffee and croissants on the beach on a Saturday morning.
With a BA Degree in Marketing Communications from AAA School of Advertising in hand (with a double specialisation in Brand Management and Account Management), Renée cut her teeth in fashion marketing and PR for five years before joining the Cape Town advertising world, working on large FMCG advertising and corporate CSI accounts for a leading South African retailer.
After writing for Yuppiechef in her spare time, Renée eventually joined the team full-time as online visual merchandiser. Together with Lisa, she went on to lead the product and content marketing team, also heading up numerous successful special brand projects.
In 2013, Renée completed the Digital Marketing Course through Quirk and the University of Stellenbosch Business School, where she was named top of the class.
Photography, brand management, creative direction, production and, of course, internationally award-winning email campaigns are her hallmark.
Renée lives in Cape Town and whenever she has the chance, she’s listening to storytelling podcasts, drinking good coffee, or painting with water colours, inks or oils.
